Health screenings: Incontinence screening
Do you get up to use the bathroom more than one time per night?
Do you go to the bathroom more often than every two hours? If so, then we may have some good advice for you.
- Urinary incontinence affects 200 million people worldwide.
- Urinary incontinence is not a normal part of aging.
- One in four women over the age of 18 will experience episodes of urinary incontinence.
- On average, women wait 6 1/2 years from the first time they experience symptoms until they obtain a diagnosis.
It is estimated that as many as one in four women may experience urinary incontinence at some time in their lives. However, most of these women go untreated or take years to report it to their health care provider. Many women see urinary incontinence as a normal sign of aging. Our quest is to educate the public and empower women to gain control over their symptoms and improve the quality of their lives.
During our free bladder health consultations, you will be given the opportunity to discuss any concerns and symptoms in a private setting. You will receive a consultation with one of our bladder health specialists who will help you:
- Better understand your condition.
- Learn what treatment options are available.
- Decide what your next steps should be.
The screening lasts about 30 minutes and takes place at the BAMC Screening Department. The results of the screening are shared with your primary care physician for follow-up.
